Ad server

Ad server: Normally operated by a third party, an ad server delivers and tracks ads on websites. Ad servers perform a useful role in building trust between advertisers and publishers since the statistics they supply are likely to be free of spin.

Ad server content is updated on a regular basis to keep advertisements fresh and dynamic. There are two primary types of ad servers, local and third party. Local ad servers generally serve a single publisher and distribute ads to websites specifically owned by that publisher. Third party servers take ads from a central server and distribute them among multiple publishers. The advantage of a local server is that is allows for more specialization and quicker changes for a single publisher. The advantage of a third party server is that it has a larger distribution network.

Advertisers can, of course, use both if their budget allows for it.

  1. Appreciating the commitment you put into your blog and in depth information you provide.
    It’s good to come across a blog every once in a while that isn’t the same outdated
    rehashed information. Wonderful read! I’ve saved
    your site and I’m adding your RSS feeds to my Google account.

  2. I have read so many articles or reviews concerning the
    blogger lovers except this article is really a pleasant paragraph, keep it up.
